SHORT TERM (Today through Saturday). The weather pattern across the lower 48 continues to be dominated by the upper ridge over the Southern Plains including here in Texas. There is an upper trough over the west coast that will soon be cutoff near the CA coast, and a upper trough moving through the upper Great Lakes and the NE United States. In the short term, the upper ridge will continue to give South Central Texas a persistence forecast of typical August heat with little to no chance of rain. The precipitable water values remain about 1.5 inches, right around normal for this time of year. There is a slight uptick on those numbers starting on Saturday and as a result have a small mention of afternoon showers/storms over the far SE zones, mostly associated with possible seabreeze convection. Other than that small mention of pop, the next 36 hours should be fairly quiet with morning clouds, giving way to mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. The afternoons will continue to produce a few wind gusts that top 20 mph. Afternoon temps will keep below any record type heat and humidities just low enough to keep out of any type of heat advisory levels.
LONG TERM (Saturday Night through Thursday). Mid and upper level ridging will continue through next weekend. The flow will generally be zonal across the Southern Plains through the middle of next week, confining any PoPs to isolated storms on the coastal plains. Toward the end of next week, the jet stream flow (250-300 mb) becomes a bit of a col or weak troughing, with northerly flow from the Northern Plains and weak waves in easterly flow from the Gulf. This has been represented by PoPs from I-35 eastward a week from today on Friday, August 14th. High temperatures will continue a few degrees either side of 100 through the next week, which is a little above normal, but not unusual for the second week of August, while lows continue in the mid 70s.
We will be environmentally friendly and not even offer straws to grasp at for rainfall over the next week. Best to plan watering or concede brown and crinkly grass and cracks in the ground. Sorry.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
